    A guy playing drums on a guitar type instrument? I'm surprised you aren't familiar with Futureman from Bela and the Flecktones.

    Built his own drumtar type instrument years ago, has been maintaining and modding it every since.

    Béla Fleck can sound pretty guitaristic too though:

    Wow, I have often seen a good idea done badly, but this is the first time I have ever seen what I would consider a bad idea done well. You gotta love japan, they're years ahead of us!

    ... which is kinda sad seeing as how that video is 22 years old :lol:

    Casiopeia's drummer, Akira Jimbo, is one of the top cats in the world when it comes to Midi triggering drums. Not because he needs to, but rather because he was already so incredible behind the kit that he just had to try new things, especially for his solo material.



    :metal:
